ArenaNet launched a new trailer for "Living World" Season 2 of its massive multiplayer online role-playing game "Guild Wars 2," the ending of which showed a hint of the eighth and final storyline.
"Guild Wars 2" Season 2's final episode "Living World" officially ended on Jan. 13, but before it did the "Point of No Return" cinematic trailer was posted on the Guild Wars 2's official YouTube channel just a few hours prior.

The first minute showed footage of the previously released episodes and didn't seem to show the actualcontents of the game. However, by the end, viewers get to see a big plant dragon roaring, which at first seemed to be a pretty good hint at the finale's direction. more >>
